A Cake for Mya

Thank you Camille who requested a 1st Birthday cake for her very special girl Mya.  I baked a two layered white cake, dressed it up with fondant, and adorned it with a gumpaste princess crown.  I added silver dragees to give Mya's crown a bit of a jeweled effect.

I wish I took photos throughout this process, but I have so much fun decorating cakes I was in total tunnel vision mode.  I wanted to share what I did with the cake.  Here are a couple of photos.

I added drops of yellow food colouring on the batter.

I then swirled the food colouring with a toothpick.  This is a wonderful way to show colour to the cake itself as one slices it.
